Valentine's Day is the holiday of love and affection. If you've already picked the perfect Valentine's Day outfit, you now need to decide on your makeup.

We suggest embracing your love for lipstick, eyeshadow and highlighter to get seriously inspired this Valentine's Day. These makeup ideas are perfect if you're trying to secretly impress your crush, hint something to your partner for who knows how long or even just shower yourself with love.

1. Glittery pink glam

Really let your eyes do the talking with this eye look that combines everything pink and glittery. This is perfect for the people who love shiny things and if you're planning on going out on the ultimate date night.

2. Muted peach tones

If you want to keep things a little understated on Valentine's Day, let us introduce you to the colour peach. It still looks soft and romantic, but not too overdone. The perfect colour to wear on Valentine's Day if you aren't feeling pink and red.

3. Classic red lip

Is it even Valentine's Day if you don't spot someone rocking a red lip? No. This is the classic makeup look for the day of love. You really can't go wrong with a red lip and you have the options of rocking it with a bare eye, a flirty wing and lashes, or an intense smokey eye.

4. Graphic liner

A classic wing? Never heard of that. Take your eyeliner game to the next level by trying the perfect graphic liner. Not only will you look so cool, you will basically look like a makeup professional. Pair with some pink or red for the ultimate Valentine's Day look.

5. Bronzed and nude glam

If you really don't want to wear pink or red but still want to look super glam and dressed up, there is no better option than a bronzed glam. This means perfecting a bronzy and glowy base, with an intense smoky eye look with lashes and all. Perfect for the girl who only wants to impress herself.

6. Get inspired by the wine

Valentine's Day is about roses, chocolates and sometimes a little (or a lot) wine. Wearing a wine colour on this holiday looks very sexy. Opt for a deep red shade on the lips, on the eyes or even both if you're really feeling yourself. It's perfect for a date night with your special someone and looks great paired with any outfit.

7. Intense dewy skin

I don't know about you, but if my skin is glowing, then I'm a happy girl. This makeup idea is all about focusing on your base. Use glowing primers, foundations and all the highlighters you own to really take it there this Valentine's Day. Play around with makeup and give yourself an intense glow, because we don't recommend this look for an everyday appearance.

8. Keep something natural

The typical sleek "Instagram brow" is so last year. It's time to let your natural eyebrows feel wild and free this Valentine's Day. Your special someone might appreciate seeing a more natural side of you, so keep the focus and attention on the eyes and face by doing minimal work to the brows. This style is very on trend at the moment and suits a wide variety of faces.

9. Get inspired by the holiday of love

It's Valentine's Day, so take the opportunity to get a little creative with your makeup. We love the idea of doing something unexpected like using red liquid eyeliner or adding small love hearts around your eyes. It's a subtler way of celebrating the holiday and is totally wearable if you're going out for a night on the town with your friends.

10. Or... you can really get inspired

If you're staying at home on your own just playing around with makeup or having fun with your friends, this is the makeup inspiration you need. There are so many Youtube tutorials that show you how to nail Valentine's Day makeup in the most intense and fun way possible. Get creative, be open to mistakes and enjoy the process!
